Use the line cord (phone line) and unplug it from your phone. Plug it into the phone port in the back of your muti fax mach. Should say line in. Use a seperate line cord and plug it into the second phone port in the back of multi fax mach. Should say line out.Then plug that line cord back into the phone. Not all fax machs. are marked (in) (out) Some have symbols, use your owners manual, or just look in back of your mach. Disreguard the second phone port on the back of the Gateway. Only use the one your phone is pluged into. Do not use a dual phone plug! Example: Gateway to fax (In)....Fax to phone (out). depending on where your mach. is located, you may need to buy two longer phone cords. WalMart etc. If you have a measure tape find out the length you need. Hope this answers your question! wgd1206
